First Appearance: El Arsenal #1 (Arcana Studios, 2005)
Powers/Abilities: Skilled fighter with a variety of weapons. Skilled in the unarmed combat tricks of the Lucha Libre.
History: It is the near future. A few years earlier a nuclear accident triggered an earthquake which broke off the Baja region from the rest of California. In the ensuing chaos, Japan launched an invasion of South America; though it ultimately failed, many of the affected countries still struggle to recover. Though a corrupt UN Peace Keeping force nominally tries to maintain law and order, mercenaries are customarily used to settle disputes by those who can afford them, provided by the System, an underground organisation which rates each mercenary by their "hitting average". The best of these mercenaries is Simon Templas Masiosare, a fun loving and fearless fighter who learned the skills of the Lucha Libre from his father, the former wrestler El Templas.
Hired to steal a biological weapon stored within three cockroaches, Simon travelled to Palomuerto, unaware a bounty had been put on his head and that his fellow mercenaries were hunting him.
